About Colab.

CoLab is Kaduna's first CoWorking Space and Innovation Hub. Beyond that, we want to grow a collaborative community of Programmers, Developers, Designers, Bloggers, Graphic Designers, Photographers, Entrepreneurs, Freelancers, Startups and Tech enthusiasts generally.


First off, we would like to say a Happy Eid-el-Fitr to our Muslim friends as they celebrate Sallah this weekend. It's a Friday, a public holiday and also Sallah. How much better can that get? One thing is certain, someone is hunched over their computer at CoLab at this moment. :-)

We're halfway through the year and we're not letting the summer heat slow us down. We've got a number of things planned out which we'll be sharing:
CoLab for Women
Our next CoLab for Women meetup will be happening on the 23rd where we'll be talking about "Networking the Right Way". Know any lady who may be interested in Kaduna? Tell them to come along.
